In seventh grade, my buddies and I considered trying out for the golf team and imagined it would be an exciting task to venture. The previous summer, I had gone to the golf course and practiced a generous amount of time on my game and I believed I would be skilled enough to make the team. Also, I had friends that were on the team the previous year and that gave me an extra incentive to try out. In seventh-grade, after trying out for the golf team, I made it. Making the team sparked the greatest passion for a game I have ever had, and it has become my life rather than a hobby.
This first year of multiple-class basketball tournaments in Indiana was a historic one. History was made because for the first time in IHSAA history, there were four basketball state champions (“IHSAA Boys Basketball State Tournament…”). Those champions were Pike High School for class 4A, Indianapolis Cathedral High School for 3A, Alexandria High School for 2A, and Lafayette Central Catholic High School for A (“IHSAA Boys Basketball State Champions”). After this first year of multiple-class basketball in Indiana, the IHSAA board of directors reviewed the class system again. This vote took place on May 3, 1999, as the return to single-class was rejected 13-5 (Nye).
Travis Bonner made two additional touchdowns in the fourth quarter. When the score reached 33-15 Jenkins County allowed their Junior Varsity team members to finish the game. Senior players didn’t mind sharing their final moments on the field with their younger teammates. “They needed to experience how the game is played at the high school level and they need all the experience they can get for next year,” Joiner said. There were more points scored in this game than any other game in the 2015 season for Jenkins County.
After graduating from MHS, the next challenge in my mission to ascend from my circumstances was to become the best student at The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State). With consideration of my mother not graduating high school, it was imperative and self- driving that I reward her sacrifices by excelling in my academic career. Eager to outperform, consequently, I earned the Smeal Merit Diversity Scholarship for three consecutive years (Freshmen-Junior) at Penn State. This prestigious scholarship is only awarded to the top five minority business students at Penn State. In addition to my academic successes, I became very active on campus and served as a leader at the top of four different campus-organizations.
This years cross country went off pretty well if you ask Harrisburg cross country runner Alexander Auch, If you ask him he will tell you that his favorite part of the season was watching his teammates improve and grow as a better runner and placing top 10 in just about every race and getting first in Brookings with a time of 16:40.66 and getting second as a team. Alex isn 't sure yet what he will do running wise after High School but he says if he get the opportunity to run in college he will take it and run with it. He will also say that he is exited for next year and looking forward to it he was been running all winter inside and out and don 't be surprised when you see him in the summer out there because the Harrisburg team has a summer
The season I had my freshman year ended up pretty well - nine goals, six assists, and a spot on the all-league team. I proved myself as a starter on the squad, and our season almost ended in elation. The section final would have been a big win for the program, as we had been to the championship three times prior and never won it since our state championship win in 2010. 2 I
Initiating and advocating change for students and the community without the expectation of being recognized is what has made me an HBCU All-Star. The moment I came to Nashville to attend the Illustrious Tennessee State University, I vowed to be an advocate for change and lead on and off campus. Countless hours and many sacrifices were made to ensure that my scholarship exemplified academic excellence. Extensive strategic planning and professional development was completed to ensure that my leadership was effective for my student body, local community, and the HBCU community at large. Humble and willing service to my community is what I’ve executed through my civic engagement in political and community affairs.
A failure can be a downward spiral or a setback turning into a benefit. When athletes experience head trauma, they only recover a little, which might end their career early or other times people never recover. In the case of my four month concussion, there are residual mental and physical problems. For me, this challenge helped me develop as a person than will work harder and strive for the best in my academics. Running onto the field, I can 't believe we won it - the High School Girls ' Rugby Championship.
My senior year was a great year for me. I was elected the Band captain by not only the staff but the entire marching band. My band director, Leslie Gilreath, wrote me as the main soloist throughout the show and got to perform in front of thousands every competition.
When an athlete has outstanding talent like a Michael Jordan or Anthony Davis in a certain sport their college could be payed for. The history of athletic scholarships dates back over a hundred years ago. Some student athletes continue their sports career because they 're passionate and love the sport they play. Other student athletes continue to play because their college is payed for them. Players who play at the division three level can not receive athletic scholarships so they play for the love of the game.
Of course, being told such things by one of the most renowned coaches in the country would be enough to make anyone push their limits. After my sophomore cross country and track seasons were nulled by my physical limitations, I developed a sort of excitement that I wish I could feel again. “I can do ANYTHING” I would tell myself as I ran each workout. Sure enough, by the beginning of my junior cross country season, I was quickly catching up with the other girls on my team. In fact, my outlook was amazing; there were three elite meets that season, each with a limit of runners on my team that would be taken.
I have been a part of the girls 4x400 meter race all four years that I have participated in the sport. In the 4x400, I had to rely on three other girls to give their all, just as they relied on me to do the same. Had we not been such a cohesive unit,we would not have made it to our ultimate goal, the State track meet. I would not have the experience of running at such a prestigious event had I not had my team by my side for the journey. Patience, humility, and the significance of teamwork have all been instilled in me through my participation in varsity athletics over the years.
My dad would coach me on top of what the coach was teaching to make sure I was exceeding my limit. Years went by playing for different teams different coaches, and I began to get pretty well known for my athleticism. I never worked so hard in my life on something then I did on football. I started 1st string ever year at the position I was playing due to how hard I worked. Sophomore year shows up, bout the time colleges start scouting players to join there teams.
Welcome to the most important set of equipment the world has ever seen: my five year old golf clubs. Let us travel through this set of clubs which includes a huge difference in clubs that compares to each one of my five College Composition I essays. Depending on the club, some clubs maybe be more reliable and interesting, but all play a major part in the overall writing this paper as it reveals information about my life, values and struggles. My first essay would easily be compared to my trusty 52 degree wedge. When I was first given this assignment, my mind raced to describing why my faith journey has had a major impact on my live and confidence in myself; this compares to my confidence I have in my 52 degree wedge on the golf course.
He has always encouraged me to become the best I can be. He would always tell me: “Strive for success and don’t stop until you reach your full potential.” Being able to see the mistakes he made will help me succeed at Allen. This past season really opened my eyes because I was offered multiple scholarships from many different Universities and Community Colleges. Looking back at my performances has made me realize how far I have come from when I set my goal when younger. I have exceeded my goals and I never imagined being as far as I am now.
